Hatch, you chickens.. damn you!
*ahem* He who gloats too early gets… some sort of… ‘gloaty disease’… or something.
I contacted the ‘Radio 4 Presenter’* yesterday to see if she wanted to sort out a date for another… err… date.
I got the following text back today:
“Hey there, sorry for the slow reply. I had a great weekend thanks – I also drank way too much! I had a really great time last week but I’ve been thinking about it & I just don’t think the spark is there. It was lovely to meet you, I hope you understand x“.
I remember sending my first ‘no spark’ let-down message. The girl did not take it particularly well. I thought it was a good, honest and original line but like so many other ‘original’ thoughts it soon turned out that I was using the same material as everyone else. Nevertheless, at least it’s generally true so I think it’s a pretty good approach. Certainly better than “It’s not you it’s me” or (as happened to R4 Presenter’s housemate) meeting your date who then clutches his head and cries “I’m sorry, I can’t do this” and runs off.
In conclusion – Points for improvement:
- Get new shoes.
